About the Author

Nick Wheeler, Senior Lecturer, Department of International Politics, University of Wales, Aberystwyth


Saving Strangers is a lucid, well-argued work that explicitly links its discussion of the circumstances under which intervention might be legitimate to its account of the nature of international society. Political Studies A sustained, reflective and timely examination of the issue of humanitarian intervention ... Wheeler does something quite rare; he combines a sophisticated theoretical discussion of the legitimacy and place of humanitarian interventions in international politics with a detailed analysis of a broad range of case studies. The result is a real contribution to the literature on this topic. Political Studies Saving Strangers is an important contribution to the burgeoning literature on humanitarian intervention. Journal of Refugee Studies This volume provides an excellent analysis of a crucial area of international relations affecting ethnic relations ... an empirically and theoretically rich and important study. The Ethnic Conflict Research Digest Nicholas Wheeler has produced a brilliantly sustained argument in support of an emergent norm of humanitarian intervention. This volume of scholarly excellence gracefully combines a powerful theoretical framework with a series of compelling case studies. Saving Strangers is the one indispensable book that addresses the contested topic of 'humanitarian' recourse to war. It deserves the widest possible readership so as to push academic understanding and policy debate in desirable directions. Richard Falk, Albert G. Millbank Professor of International Law and Practice, Princeton University The book is an excellent introduction to its huge topic, using theories and examples to illustrate arguments clearly and concisely. For specialists it provides interesting and thought-provoking debate on solidarist theory. New World
